Welcome to Western Tuva

The route looping round to Abakan from Tuva via Askiz is scenically varied, often beautiful and mesmerisingly vast in scale, though the Chinggis Khaan stone near Ak-Dovurak is virtually the only real ‘sight’. While independent travel is feasible, you’ll see a lot more in Tuva’s west in the company of a local or a guide hired in Kyzyl. The Sayan Ring agency in Krasnoyarsk comes this way. The Yenisey federal highway (R257), which begins in Krasnoyarsk, is now being extended from Kyzyl to the border.
